Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is a special program to promote the basic human rights and welfare of the human subjects enrolled in the medical research conducted in Ewha Womans University Mokdong Hospital. The program also plays an important role in protecting the researcher and the hospital from any complaints or blames of the human subjects and in making sure the good quality of the research itself scientifically as well as ethically. For the purpose, HRPP is running a special committee and center-Human Research Protection Center (HRPC). The HRPC provides counseling and consulting for the human subjects and researchers, and educational programs for the researchers are also offered. In addition, the center conducts audit and monitoring of the human research in collaboration with the Institutional Review Board. To conduct an ethically and scientifically sound research, researchers should fully understand the function of HRPP, affirmatively work together with HRPP, readily participate in any educational program required for the human researcher, and keep the rules and guidelines regarding human research well.
